SlingShot® is a small lightweight and cost-effective solution that enables BLOS COTM using in-service tactical radios via a global commercial satellite network provider.

BLOS COTM – Beyond Line of Sight Communications On The Move

SlingShot is unique as a BLOS solution in that it also delivers robust Communications on the Move. It can create a secure tactical net between dismounted units and fast moving land vehicles, boats and aircraft.

Command & Control Communications

Effective Command & Control of tactical units needs secure BLOS COTM between all units across all agencies. Only SlingShot can deliver such capability.


Once SlingShot enabled, UHF and VHF in-service tactical radios can form one net via a commercial satellite provider to deliver BLOS COTM. This can be done securely if the radios are sharing the same cryptography, or in clear when that is not possible.
